This study examined the effect of parenting on self-esteem among adolescents of Labadi Presbyterian Secondary School. A total number of 165 participants of both sexes with their ages ranging from 15 -20 years were selected randomly from the students in the school using a stratified sampling technique. The cross sectional survey design was used for the study. The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale was used to collect the data on the self esteem of the students. The results showed that the self-esteem of adolescents living with both parents was more than those living with single parents. Again male adolescents had more self esteem than the female ones.   There was no relationship between age and self-esteem. The results gathered made clear that the availability of both parents is related to the self-esteem of their adolescents.
